So you’ve taken care of the basics on your holiday gift list, but you’ve still got those people who require a little bit more thought. The mall isn’t cutting it and Amazon has failed you, so it’s time to head to Etsy. We’ve compiled some of our favorite items from the best shops to help you find something for all your weird and wonderful loved ones.
Knitted scarves, hats, and headbands
Perfect for: Your favorite women
These products are great because they are super warm and cozy but also stylish. The store has a variety of products in endless colors. I own both a scarf and a headband, and I’ve given them as presents to my boyfriend’s mom and sister.
Sassy hoop art on vintage fabric
Perfect for: Your classy but sassy best friend
I own a needlepoint hoop art piece that says “slay” and a painted book page. The best part is that the artist does custom requests. I recently had her create this one for a Christmas present this year. I got to pick the saying and the fabric. Incredibly creative, fun, and personal!

Customized State Necklace
Perfect for: A long-distance BFF or sibling
It’s cute, elegant, and meaningful.
HP Lovecraft Beer Mug
Perfect for: nerds who drink beer
I got this for my fiancé last christmas. He loves it! The shop has a nice collection of other nerdy puns to choose from on mugs, bowls, and other dishware. There’s something for everyone, no matter the fandom or preferred beverage!

Gilmore Girls “Where You Lead” Sign
Perfect For: A Gilmore Girls super fan
While the GG revival A Year In The Life got mixed reviews by critics and fans alike, the original is still as binge watchable as ever. This wooden sign is a nod to the series without being overdone… Perfect for the Lorelai in your life!
Suggested by: Kirstie Renae
Perfect for: Coworkers or Staff
This is great because it feels personal without a lot of effort and is easy on the wallet. My employees loved them this year.

The Great British Bakeoff Innuendos Poster
Perfect for: The off-color baker in your life.
You don’t have to be an Anglophile to love the Great British Bakeoff’s irreverent, cheeky humor, and this poster is a best-off ode to the brilliance of dirty baking.
Vintage Hogwarts Express Travel Poster
Perfect for: The adult Potter-head with a new home.
It’s elegant, it’s subtle, and it’s the perfect nod to your love of Harry Potter without being too over the top.
Here Comes the General George Washington T-Shirt
Perfect for: The Hamilton enthusiast or general history nerd in your life
Whether they’re the OG history nerd or Hamilton obsessed, they’re going to go bonkers for GW wearing Raybans.
Middle Earth Pillow Map
Perfect for: The stylish LOTR nerd
Is there anything better than bringing your fandom into your home decor without it looking like a bad episode of The Big Bang Theory? I think not.
Pride and Prejudice Locations Print/T-Shirt/Tea Towel
Perfect for: The English major and Austenite
It’s the perfect literary reference to your beloved Pride & Prejudice without going full Lost in Austen.
For Fox Sake Print
Perfect for: Animal lovers and smart-asses everywhere
It’s typography print, with a fox, that implies something naughty. Why haven’t you bought it yet?
